Social Security Disability: How it Works

The Social Security Administration provides disability benefits to American citizens who lost the ability to work because they contracted an illness or a disability expected to last at least a year or result in death. If a disability claim is approved, the benefits that a person can expect to receive are based on his or her average lifetime earnings. If a disability claim is denied, one is afforded the chance to appeal the claim. Once a claim is approved, initial Social Security disability benefits will be paid out six months after the date one contracted the disability at issue.
